I saw these boots and read every review multiple times. I was just not sure about the height of the boot or if I could get my foot in them.
I finally ordered them (LEATHER ones due to rainy season) and I'm writing this review so you can make sure you get the right boot size for you. I'm a perfect 8m....I bought both the 8m and 7.5m as I wanted to make sure of a good fit. I hate tight footwear...I pride myself on a comfortable fit. The 8m was loose in foot area. My heel was slipping even though it felt comfortable.....( I have a medium foot and a normal arch) . I rolled the shaft of the boots down to 4 inches above the foot of boot, pointed my toe and slide my foot in. If you have a high arch or thicker foot, this could be challenging. The 7.5m fit snugger....no heel movement and I believe the shaft portion of boot is a little snugger on the 7.5m as well. I wore for 7 hours my first day and they were very nice. My feet were comfortable. I got some water marks on the foot area, even after spraying, so I quickly picked up some Cadillac shield spray from Nordstrom and it was the key. The leather is VERY supple and molds to your foot and legs.
I'm 5'4, 127lbs......I have thin legs....my inseam is 28inches. The boot height is wonderful....After wearing the boots, I did notice they conformed to my foot even more and It is VERY important you don't buy them loose in any area of the foot bed.
As far as the boots staying up, it was no problem. I double knotted the ties and they stayed up all day with legging and subsequently with skinny legged jeans.

Beautiful boots. I got confused with all the reviews I read. Followed that assuming that they run small & ordered half of size smaller. They were tight. I believe they run true to size since I ordered my normal Size 9.

So I guess you could say things are getting pretty serious.
I purchased these, the Stuart Weitzman "Playtime" and the Dolce Vita Neeley to compare. These are my favorite (of course). They have a very narrow calf, but are not too narrow to fit over skinny jeans. The boot shaft on these are basically the same tightness as the SW Playtime, but these are a bit dressier. I like that the boot is straight across (not higher in the front) and tight. The Neeleys looked a bit like a pirate to me. I am between a 7.5 and 8, generally going with 8s most of the time. I took at 7.5 in these.

I have been looking at these boots online for awhile. I am 5'3" and 125 pounds. My typical shoe size is a 9.5. I often find that boots in my shoe size are loose on my calves/legs and given my height (or lack of), I wasn't sure that these boots would work for me, nor was I sure that I would wear them enough to justify the price.
On a whim, I decided to give them a try. I immediately fell in love with them (so much so that I purchased a pair of highlands too). The suede is stretch and they are absolutely wonderful.
I purchased these in black suede. My only reason for giving them 4 stars instead of 5 was that the black color seems to transfer. I have only worn them with dark colored pants & denim, therefore any color transfer is not visible (other than on my hands). I would not feel comfortable wearing these with a light color pants given the color transfer issue.
Nordstrom's has a wonderful return policy and would allow me to return them, but quite frankly, I don't want to part with them. I am going to try to spray them with a color preserving solution (as was recommended when I contacted the Stuart Weitzman customer service department), hopefully this will help.
If you are on the fence about these, they are wonderful and I would highly recommend them; just be careful with the color transfer issue if you purchase them in black.
